Boho Combo Braid Half Up

For this week’s post I have a cute, mixed-braid half up hairstyle to show you! It’s something that’s a bit more different and unique to what I’d normally do, but I hope you like it!

My sister is modelling this hairstyle for me today, but it can also be a DIY hairstyle. 😉

Items needed: several hair ties and bobby pins

Time: 5-10 minutes

Difficulty: medium

Step-by-step instructions:

1.) Begin a dutch fishtail braid with a small section of hair at the very front of your hairline..

2.) Continue braiding straight back, leaving out some hair on either side of your head above your ears for the next part of the hairstyle…

3.) Stop adding in hair to the braid when you reach the top of your ears. Then finish off the braid with a regular fishtail, and remember to pancake the braid by tugging on the edges of the braid..

4.) Now pick up one of the sections of hair you left out of the braid on either side of your head and create a rope twist... Repeat on the other side of your head..

5.) Once you’ve pancaked the twists, lay them over the dutch fishtail and pin in place (don’t worry if it’s a tad messy, as that’s the look you’re going for. 😉 )

6.) Now the last part of this hairstyle is optional, so you can either leave the hairstyle as is, or add this on for something extra. Pick up a small section of hair from either side of your head just below the other braids and secure together in the middle of your head. Poke two fingers up and behind the section you just secured and pass the ends of the section through to your fingers and pull the ends down to create a ‘flip through.’

7.) Adjust anything to your liking, and you’re done!

Well, that’s all I have for today, please leave your hairstyle requests and comments down below! Have a great week, and I’ll see you next time with another tutorial. 😉
